    Hello, I am loving my bold… but I have a question.
    Is there a way of disabling the use of internet without completely disabling data?
    When I disable the data I can’t send or receive MMS. But I’m afraid that if I don’t disable the it I may accidentally hit a browser button and gets a big bill.

    I'm confused here, do you have a data plan?

    Sorry…
    No I do not have the data plan. I would like it but cannot justify an extra $30 a month to play on the internet.

    So why did you get a Blackberry then? I would think a Razor phone more suits your needs.

    Data is for far more than playing on the internet. MMS, now that's playing.

    In "browser options" under both "browser configuration" and "general properties" make sure the "browser" is set to "hotspot browser". That will prevent the browser from using data.

    Hi, yes there are actually two ways...

    a) You can call your service provider and ask them to block your mobile internet.

    OR

    b) Go into Options - Advanced Options - Applications - Browser - Edit Permissions - Connections - Internet - Deny

    Repeat step B for any other application that may be connecting to the mobile, non WiFi, internet.

    So why did you get a Blackberry then? I would think a Razor phone more suits your needs.
    I think that's rather presumptuous ... maybe the user appreciates the

    - Free WiFi
    - Free GPS
    - QWERTY keyboard
    - 480 x 320 screen
    - great speakers

    Presumptuous indeed! That is just how awesome Bolds are, they rock even without a data plan!

    Just like a Ferrari rocks without gas in it's tank, pretty pointless.

    Didn’t mean to offend anyone… Like I said I would like to have it but for my situation I just can’t justify $30. I don’t get that many personal emails or texts. I am still new to blackberries I have only had it 2 weeks but so far I really enjoy using it as an mp3 player.
    “Free GPS” now that sounds cool I will have to check into that.

    The GPS is there and its free BUT you need data to navigate the mapping program

    Ok how's this, a Blackberry without a data plan is like having a Swiss bank account without money?

    No you don't need data to use gps mapping programs like MGMaps that allow you to save maps onto your micro SD card.

    Here's one for you, a Blackberry without a data plan is like having $200 extra each year in your Swiss bank account
